Towards Sustainability

Prof. Dr. Marco Aurélio Zezzi Arruda
Full Professor at the Dept. of Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Chemistry at the University of Campinas, SP, Brazil
BrJAC Editor-in-Chief

“Within the context of sustainable development, this volume of the BrJAC is prone to a diversity of applications towards sustainability that involve methods employing small volumes, low-cost sensors, minimalist techniques and the importance of teaching metrology, among others. It is time to enjoy the reading of this issue and take into consideration the important aspects for the next application of our research work, which may involve environmental protection, circular economy and resource sustainability, the so-called sustainability triad (Environment, Economy and Society). Onwards to sustainability!” read more


Professor José Luis Capelo Martinez, a researcher who believes that science and technology have a direct and tangible impact on human well-being kindly granted BrJAC an interview

Prof. Dr. José Luis Capelo Martinez
Associate Professor at the University NOVA of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal

“…research is not just an academic pursuit but a powerful tool for addressing pressing societal issues. It's a commitment to using my abilities to contribute to the greater good, to extend a helping hand to those in need, and to make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and communities.” read more

Point of View

Teaching Experimental Instrumental Analytical Chemistry – Are we forming professionals, training operators or illuding students (and ourselves)?

Prof. Dr. Fabio Augusto
Full Professor of the Department of Analytical Chemistry at the Institute of Chemistry, University of Campinas, SP, Brazil

“Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes we make with our current students is that we consider them ill-prepared or less capable than our generation and attribute their difficulties to this simplistic, crude verdict – when perhaps the biggest problem is that, as educators, we are failing to cope with the rapid evolution in the characteristics and profiles of these young people.” read more


Electrochemical Biosensors for the Detection of Viruses: Must-Have Products or Just Science for Publication?

Brazaca, L. C.; Bonacin, J. A.; Muñoz, R. A. A.; Janegitz, B. C.; Carrilho, E.

“The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has brought significant light to the urgent need for rapid, precise, and low-cost diagnosis tools. The scientific community has responded as quickly, overflowing the literature with papers describing interesting biosensors for aiding in the diagnosis of COVID-19. However, almost none of them, mainly the electrochemical ones have reached the market or never will, with only a few traditional formats used in the daily combat of the virus, including ELISA, lateral flow assays, and, mainly, PCR.” read more
